“Run the AT northbound from Rt 23 AT parking area to the High Point Monument wooden observation platform.”— janelle mo
The are two worthwhile views before reaching the observation platform. The trail rail is rocky, with uneven ground the entire distance with minor scrambling if any at all.
This route is out and back, approximately 3.5 miles.
Note: to continue to the Monument Trail, run a short distance past the platform, where the AT intersects with the Monument Trail (red and green) and the Shawangunk Ridge Trail (medium blue). Continue straight rather than bearing right on the AT.
